You learn something new every day, whether or not you realize it right away. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Today I learned the difference between bowler hats, pork pie hats and fedoras. Before today, they were all just fedoras to me. It never occurred to me that all three of these different hat styles had different names.

I also learned that Roseanne is Jewish, and that gummy shot glasses exist.

It doesn't have to be anything life-changing or significant or anything, just something that you learned. So AG, I ask you now, what did you learn today?

I learned that "Madainn" means "morning" and "Oidhche" means "night" in Scottish Gaelic. Two new vocabulary words to add to my repertoire thanks to @UnleashedUponMankind.

Quite. Try dealing with 100+ degrees Fahrenheit (37+ degrees C) where I'm from.

Today I learned I'm not crazy when I say you can look at a guitar wrong and it will go out of tune.

I learned that this thread now has 2,000 replies. Voices carry.

I learned that a straw with a slit in it can make an awful whistling noise when you try to cover up the slit and drink at the same time. The same drink contained a small, sharp, plastic shard. Not going there again.
